The Belmont Blacklist

Beer Friends

Belmont Massachusetts based bottle shop Craft Beer Cellar found itself the focus of the beer blogosphere recently when an internal memo was leaked to the public. A purchasing guideline for franchisees was dubbed a “blacklist” when it was discovered there was a list of breweries that were not to be carried in stores. Should we be concerned when small businesses take this step or is this normal operating procedure? Does this bother craft beer drinkers? Is this legal? Does we even care? For more context on Massachusetts beer business and laws listen to our episode Boston Beer Bribery Boondoggle . Grab a pint and join the conversation on facebook, twitter, or email us.
